    According to the Alberta Liquor site, these four places carry it but you will have to call them to see if it is actually in stock.
    (403) 240-2444 LIQUOR DEPOT AT COACH HILL 6448 OLD BANFF COACH ROAD SW
    (403) 276-6228 NICASTRO LIQUOR STORE 2418A EDMONTON TRAIL NE
    (403) 296-1640 WILLOW PARK LIQUOR STORE 10801 BONAVENTURE DRIVE SE
    (403) 543-8900 WINE COTTAGE 145-315 8 AVENUE SW

      No offense Stef but how hard did you look?

      I just called Nicastro and they do have it in stock.

        Fernet is not a common drink. As you can see in Calgary only four stores do. Branca mentha is even harder to find.

      Thanks everyone. My friends and I actually did try over 30 places. Great help!

        I learned the trick of checking the ALCB website here. Saved me from looking all over for Khukri rum and turned me into a (legal) rum runner from the US.
